VEGAN COULIS DE TOMATES À LA PROVENÇALE

[Vegan Fresh Tomato Purée with Garlic and Herbs]

Julia says this is a thick, concentrated tomato sauce with real Mediterranean flavor...

...start with some onions...cooked in oil slowly for 10 minutes...

...until tender but not browned...

...add some flour...

...then stir in some tomatoes...add some saffron...a small pinch...

...I made my tea ball bouquet garnis with parsley, thyme some fennel, basil and coriander...and the bay leaf and dried orange peel I tossed in separately as they are easy to remove later...

...finish up with some salt pepper and sugar...Julia also says to stir in some tomato paste if you need the colour - mine was bright enough without it...

...we served this with the Omelettes Gratinées à la Tomate...so very good...

Substitutions: None - one of the few vegan recipes I've come across...
